I graduated from Hershey High School and I wouldn't have had it any other way. I was NOT spoiled, snotty or rich and I still enjoyed every second I spent at this school. I didn't appreciate the education I received until I began college and saw my peers who were not as fortunate as I was to attend ...  Read more

I rated this School purely on the academics. The Kids that go to the school are spoiled, snotty and have their little "cliques" to which new kids entering have a hard time adjusting & making friends. These kids need to realize that Mommy and Daddy didn't always have money to throw away on them, they ...  Read more

I am current student and this school is the best. Everyone thinks that we will be snobs as we go to Hershey but it is far from it. We have great education, sports and clubs, but we are only a public school-we still have some problems. Not horrible ones that usually make the news, just normal ones - some ...  Read more

There are great choices ...  Read more

School has excellent teachers, however it is crowded and social behavioral issues are a big challenge as governance is a big issue.

I moved here a while ago, and was kept away from most other kids in terms of social life. On the other hand, the level of education and related activities is very, very good. Having been in ...  Read more

Extraordinary school for the college prep student. Not so good if your child's favorite class is shop (they don't have one). Absolutely terrific district to grow up in, tougher to assimilate for newcomers that don't fit the prep image. Outstanding emotional support program for SED students, but an uphill ...  Read more

The academic proram at the Derry Township School District (Hershey High School) is one of the best in the country. It's a very expensive district to attend, but the education makes it worth it. Cliques are noticable in the area of sports. Though the school ia place of learning for all, the sports arena ...  Read more
